"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

Random Poetry--Enjoy!

It's been a while since I posted anything I'v written, but I just woke up around 1:00 with the irresistible urge to do just that.  (Don't worry, Mom; I'm going straight back to bed after this post.)  So enjoy this sample of my work, below:

Little green notebook,
Ink on paper.
Blue lines dash
Across the page.

The words spill out,
Mish-mash, swish-swash.
Words, letters, words.

Ink on paper,
Splotchy letters.
A spoem is born.

This next one was written while I was trying to get permission to pray with prayer shawl and phylacteries with the Orthodox prayer group on campus.  The title translates  to "Strength and Faith."

Koach v'Emunah
These are not the 1920s.
I am not a suffragette.

I don't want to fight for rights.
All I want to do is pray.

They won't let me.
They don't get me.

I am Woman,proud and free.

It shouldn't be this hard.
It shouldn't be this hard.

 Jewish Uniform
Arba Kanfot:
"Ropy things,"
One set,
Five sets,
Look the same.

Leather straps
Binding them down.

Cornered piece of cloth.
"Ropy things"
And fringes too.

Kippah, also
\Crowning glory
Tops the head.

Properly dressed Jew.:

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
